Walk magazine Autumn 2023

Walk is the Ramblers’ quarterly magazine, with more readers than any other UK walking mag

Autumn 2023 

There’s a ‘back to school’ feeling about early autumn (even if childhood is long behind you!). It’s a great time for starting a new project – maybe tackling the will you’ve been putting off writing. Let Walk magazine help you, with information about free will-writing schemes and inspiration from ramblers who used their will to create a lasting legacy for future generations.  

We’ll also help you beat autumn chills with our experts’ reviews of the best hiking fleeces, and keep your footing in muddy conditions with our Masterclass on walking with poles. And we’ll warm your heart with this season’s interviews: ‘Blind Adventurer’ Amar Latif shares his incredible journey from first-time hiker to Ramblers president, and Aussie expat Dianne Maclean Whiting reveals how joining the Ramblers helped her fall in love with her new homeland. 

If you’ve experienced ‘the joy of treks’ too, tell us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Or share the moment in our autumn photo competition

Happy rambling!

UNESCO sites in Crete

Boasting mountains that reach 2500m, plateaus and plains that mark the boundaries between regions, gorges that provide ways out to two seas, the Cretan and the Libyan, as well as an age-long history and cultural richness, the four UNESCO Sites in Crete create a rightful place among the UNESCO protected areas.
